Title: ReFlow: Internet Traffic Statistics


Statistics about network traffic can be very useful to researchers, network engineers and analysis that want to know how Internet traffic looks like and even to determine short- or long-term trends. In the past, Internet2 provided statistics in a weekly basis from the Abilene network in USA. This project was discontinued and the last data released was from April 2010. Our goal is to revive the idea of publicly publishing traffic statistics. Differently from Internet2, however, we aim at having statistics from many networks around the world and, hence, a much more representative picture of the general Internet traffic. In this colloquium I am going to present an overall view of the implemented system at DACS, from traffic collection to statistics generation.
